Short.io is a popular URL shortener that lets you create short links, which can be used in your marketing campaigns, social media posts, and more.
If you're looking to migrate from Short.io to Dub, we've built a custom migration tool that will help you migrate your links in a few simple steps.
First, log into your Short.io account and navigate to the Integrations & API page.
Click on "Create API Key", which will open up a modal. Leave all the options as default and click "Create".
Copy the created API key. You'll need it in the next step.
If you haven't already, create a project on Dub.
Protip: Once you create your project, we generally recommend you not to configure your domain until you've migrated all your links. This will prevent any potential downtime for your links.
Then, from your project dashboard, click on the
⌄ button next to the Create Link button and select Import from Short.io.
You'll be prompted to enter your Short.io API key. Paste the API key you copied in the previous step and click Confirm API Key.
Behind the scenes, we'll fetch all your Short.io custom domains and their respective number of links. You'll be presented with a list of domains that we've found.
Select the domains you want to migrate and click Confirm import. In just a few seconds, all your links will be migrated to Dub.
Once all your links have been imported, we will send you an email to let you know that the migration is complete.
Once you receive the email, you can configure your domain and start using your links!
Short.io offers many features for its short links, such as link expiration, password protection, and more.
